A few minutes from airport and a few minutes from the centre of Launceston.. if using it as your base to explore Launceston you really can't go wrong. We stayed in a cabin it was beautifully furnished and in immaculate condition. The cabin must have been sound proofed also as could not hear my friends inside when I was sitting...

Thank you for your review Alana. Yes, the new villas are fully insulated and have double glazing - not just great for noise but also great for keeping the warmth of the heat pumps in. Perfect for the winter months ahead !! We look forward to seeing you again one day.

Spacious park with nice bathroom.. we could hear the highway when sitting outside (compression breaking, sirens) One of the better parks we've used when staying in a city. As we were in motorhomes it wasn't really walking distance to anywhere but that's pretty normal when camping in a city

OK place to stay however one disappointment. When we tried to log on to the “free” Wifi it happened via some Facebook arrangement. We have never wanted to be on Facebook but after the wifi sign on we found ourselves with a Facebook account (since deleted). Perhaps there is some financial gain to the Park from this arrangement? We pay...

Arrived without booking, very friendly & helpful staff advised they would have a cabin, but due to a plumbing break were shuffling things about & park undergoing upgrading too, would be a few hours before we could get in, but promised they would ring as soon as available, we went off to shop & sightsee. Only about 90 minutes later...

Fantastic family villas with heaps of space and everything you need provided. Beds were comfortable and the park was very quiet despite being next to highway. Kids played for hours on the jumping pillow. Great base for exploring and very helpful staff.

Hi Kim, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! It was great seeing the girls gymnastics skills at work on that jumping pillow :)

The staff are very friendly, the cabin was very good and clean. The park is very close to town and some great restaurants on the water, so a cheap taxi ride. They are definitely improving this park and the plans for the future look good.

Easily found from the airport travel to Launceston and it is on the left at the bottom of a big hill as you enter Launceston. We chose a 'budget' cabin but you would never know it as it was presented in a very clean and tidy manner. Well furbished and very well positioned to the CBD. This was an old...

Just 10 mins from Launceston Airport, this is a great Holiday Park. Cabin was big, modern and comfy. Bathroom/shower was spacious which would be fantastic for older travellers or people with disabilities. Playground /Air pillow for kids and I loved the wallabies just outside cabin door. Would definitely stay again next time we are in Launceston.

Thank you for your review. We now have 2 'all access' cabins which are fully compliant for disabled travellers but also fantastic for the elderly or anyone needing a little extra space. We hope to see you again soon.

On the whole I though this camp site was very good. We stayed for three nights and it was fine for that. It has been undergoing a re-vamp over the past few years and you can see the difference where they are investing money. The new amenities block is superb, could not fault it in the slightest. Great showers, very...

Thank you for your honest and accurate review Rob. You are correct that the camp kitchen etc are yet to be redeveloped. The park, when purchased 2 years ago, was in a very bad state and a lot of infrastructure (power, water etc) had to be renewed first. Unfortunately this has delayed the development but we are all working as...
